      • "Can be slightly sticky"

      Does what it claims to do...can't go wrong!

      I'm generally quite a fan of Simple products and have yet to come across a product I didn't like. The Facial Toner is no exception.

      I purchased the toner off Amazon alongside a number of other Simple products and got it for £2. I use it after using the cleansing lotion and there is a noticeable difference in the elasticity of my skin. My skin feels firmer and smoother whilst still feeling hydrated. The only disadvantage I would say is that sometimes it can leave your skin feeling a little sticky but I think that's because I apply the toner with my fingers. I'm pretty sure that this problem can be resolved by using cotton wool or cosmetic pads, which I'm going to start trying.

      Packaging wise there is nothing special about the bottle. It follows a simple white and green theme, much like all the other products in the range but I think this is a good thing as it reinforces its message about natural products without all the added chemicals.

      The toner is great to use as part of a ritual and makes for a quick and easy routine when combined with the cleansing lotion and the moisturiser. For £2, I don't think anyone can go wrong with this product. Don't expect any miracles and think that by using it once your skin will magically look younger and healthier but I believe with consistent use, it will have a positive effect on your skin in the long term.

      I would most definitely recommend this product as it delivers on what it claims to do, especially if it is purchased alongside the cleansing lotion and moisturiser, both of which are also part of the range.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      does what it says

      Simple is a brand I have tried quite a few times over the years as the products are generally kind to skin. I do try others when there are offers on or if I am bored of it but there aren't a lot of other skin care products where I buy the same items over and over again.

      I like simple as being an affordable brand that I can buy from most places.

      **Packaging**
      I must have picked these up cheap at some point because I seem to have about 5 of the 50ml tubs. Either that or I got them for travel use. The lid just twists of and the top of the product has a small hole in which it comes out. It can be annoying if you want the product to come out quickly but It is good for stopping you spill the entire thing. The 50ml is perfect for travel and lasts over a week away getting used twice a day by two people.

      **In use**
      The active ingredients in this are chamomile and witch hazel. I'm guessing the chamomile is to soothe your skin and the witch hazel is to tone it. This product doesn't have much of a smell. This is a toner so I use it with a cleanser -at the minute it is lancome clarifying cleanser and a moisturiser .To use this all you do is apply it to cotton wool and sweep over your face. This soothes and tones my skin. Its not very moisturising by itself but that why I use a moisturiser.


      Overall I think that this is great as a cheap toner. It can be frequently bought on an offer such as 3 for £5 from Asdas etc, however I do get bored of the same thing all the time and its not like some brands where you can just the scent etc to switch things up

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Brilliant product.

      When I switched up my skin care routine I also decided to make a conscious effort to use a toner twice a day after cleansing and before moisturising. Although I've always owned a toner it's the one part of my routine that tend to be lazy with and miss it out. I bought this simple toner along with a simple cleanser. I have previously reviewed the cleanser and was quite critical about it, however generally I tend to like 'Simple' products so thought it only fair to also review the toner I bought as I was quite impressed.

      The packaging is simplistic, of course. It comes in a see through green bottle which is useful as it allows you to see how much product is left in the bottle. As always the bottle has instructions for use on the back and all the ingredients used in the product.

      Simple pride their brand on using natural products for naturally healthy skin. In order to do this or contains Pro-Vitamin B5 to restore and soften the skin, nutrients such as chamomile, witch hazel and allantoin, which combined help to soften tone and protect the skin and tighten pores. The toner contains no perfume, no colour and is 100% alcohol free. This ensures it is not too harsh on the skin, therefore ideal for people with sensitive skin.

      As mentioned before I use this day and night after cleansing and before moisturising. To use I simply apply fairly generously to cotton wool and wipe all over my face. It does state on the bottle to use upward movements when doing this. Since using this I have found my skin feels so much cleaner and is so refreshing when applied. It is light and soothing on the skin and is also great for getting those last traces of dirt and make up left on the skin after cleansing.

      This 200ml bottle can be picked up from Boots for a bargainous £2.99! With that price you can't really go far wrong. It may also be available from ships such as Superdrug, Savers and Bodycare but I am not 100% sure. I would definitely recommend this product, especially to people who have sensitive skin. I know it can be difficult to find products that work with sensitive skin but this is definitely one of them. It really is 'kind to skin'.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A gentle toner that's great value for money

      I got this Simple Facial Toner as part of a gift set for Christmas. The gift set contained this Toner, a Cleansing Lotion, a Light Moisturiser, and a small gift bag. I hadn't used the toner before, and wasn't entirely sure what it was for when I first received it, but I love Simple products and was eager to try something new.

      ---Packaging---

      The bottle is made from green see-through plastic, which I like, as it's easy to see how much product is left. As usual with Simple, the packaging clearly states that the product contains vitamins and skin-loving ingredients, and also that it's 100% alcohol free.

      ---Using the Product---

      The instructions on the back of the bottle say that for best results you should apply a generous amount to cotton wool and wipe in gentle upward movements over your skin. It's best to use a cotton wool pad for this, as the product is quite runny and the pad will absorb the liquid better than normal cotton wool.

      As the product is runny, you do end up using quite a bit each time you use it. The instructions say to use a generous amount, and really you don't have a lot of choice, as it pours very freely from the bottle. That being said, this isn't really a downside, as you do get great results when the product is used generously.

      The first few times I used this product, I noticed that the pad was quite dirty afterwards. This surprised me, as I wash my face every day, and while I know I have oily skin, I didn't expect that much dirt to come off. Since I've been using this, the pads don't come up as dirty as they used to, which is definitely a sign that the product is working it's magic.

      As with the Cleansing Lotion, it's recommended to use this twice a day; once in the morning, and once in the evening. Of course, if you only want to use it once a day, and make the bottle last longer, it's up to you, but it's really best to use it twice a day. I use this after the Cleansing Lotion and it just helps to make my skin feel squeaky clean, which is especially nice just before bed.

      You're also supposed to follow the lotion and the toner with the moisturiser that was provided in the gift set. It's always a good idea to moisturise a lot during the winter anyway, especially if you have dry skin. I always moisturise after cleansing and scrubbing my face, as a lot of products can dry out my skin. I haven't noticed any dry skin from the toner yet, but as I always moisturise, I haven't really given it a chance to dry my skin out!

      ---Results---

      Since I've been using this, combined with the Cleansing Lotion, I have noticed that my skin is a lot clearer. Judging by the dirt that comes off onto the cotton wool, this product does clean the skin very well. I haven't used it by itself yet, but as it always manages to find dirt, even after I've used the lotion, it must have different cleaning agents to the lotion, so I would definitely recommend using them together.

      ---Scent---

      Simple products don't contain any perfume, which makes them great for sensitive skin. The only smell I notice from this product is a slightly soapy and very clean scent.

      ---Ingredients---

      The main ingredients in this toner are Chamomile, Witch Hazel and Allantion, which are all known to care for skin. The product also contains Pro-Vitamins B3 and B5, which according to the product bottle, are great for skin.

      ---Price---

      As I got this product in a gift set, I wasn't aware of the price until I researched it for myself. I only have about a quarter of the bottle left at the moment, but I have been using it nearly every day since Christmas, so I think it's well worth the money. It usually sells for £3-£4, and can be bought from several shops, including Superdrug, Boots, Savers, and various Supermarkets.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great product for a great price.

      I don't know about you, but when you reach a certain age, skin toner's become an important part of you daily cleansing regime. Simple products have been around for year so I'm sure most of you would have heard of them. Their Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner works exactly as it says on the label. It simply soothes your face after you have cleansed it to remove anything you may not have removed with your wipes. For best results you should use it twice a day.

      Apply it generously to cotton wool and wipe in gentle upward movements over skin. It has no perfume in it and has been dermatologically tested and approved and it contains Pro-Vitamin B5, Chamomole, Witch Hazel and Allantoin which helps to keep your skin toned and refreshed. It's brilliant to use after you have been in the sun as the Chamomile and Witch Hazel cool your face down.

      You can buy it from a number of places including Amazon, Boots, Tesco, Asda, Superdrug, Waitrose and other online retailers and the price is around £2.99. One of the best things to go with this toner is the Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturisers which I will also write a review on.

      Other ingredients are -
      Aqua, Sorbitol, Sodium PCA, Allantoin, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Methylparaben, Propylene Glycol, Panthenol, Hamamelis Virginiana Distillate, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol, Chamomilla Recutita Extract, Pantolactone, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Does exactly what it says on the tin!

      Simple toner from Simple is a 200ml product which comes in a fat green plastic bottle with green plastic twist off lid.

      The normal retail price of this is £3 but currently it is in a 3 for £6 deal at Asda so it works out at just £2 a bottle.

      After using a creamy cleansing lotion (Boots own brand) to remove my (really quite heavy) foundation I moisten a cotton wool pad with this toning lotion and swipe over my face to remove the cleansing cream. After toning I moisturise with Olay cream.

      The problem I have with this toner is that the product comes out of a really small hole in the lid and so it is quite hard to moisten a whole cotton pad with it

      The toning lotion itself does not smell of anything, we are told it is not perfumed or coloured so this does not come as any kind of surprise.

      The lotion is wonderfully and refreshing and leaves my face feeling completely make up free and fresh before I moisturise.

      I will definitely use this again, and will hopefully buy it when it is on special offer next time!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Gentle on the skin, feels cooling and refreshing.

      I have had a cleansing routine since I was a young woman. I am now in my 50's and it is second nature to do my routine both morning and night. I rarely don't do my routine and only really don't do it if I am feeling too unwell and cannot be bothered to do it. I have sensitive skin and have bought products from this range quite a few times, found they are really suitable for my kind of skin.

      The toner comes inside a green plastic bottle, the toner is a clear liquid which just appears like water. The liquid has no smell to it and is fragrance free. It does smell like fresh water in my opinion.

      It is easy to apply to the skin using a cotton pad, bud or just any wool. You only need a little of the liquid on the cotton wool and gently wipe it across the skin. It is to be used after cleaning the skin on the face after using soap and water or a cleansing lotion or cream. I only ever use a cleaning lotion or cream to cleanse my skin and very rarely ever use soap on my face.

      It feels really cooling on the skin while wiping it with the cotton wool. Feels quite refreshing and I cannot sense any tingly feeling on my skin during or after it has been applied. Lots of toners do tend to have that tingly feeling for at least a few seconds or so but this one doesn't give that sensation to my skin.

      It is designed to remove any last traces of cleanser or make up on the skin and to help the skin look radiant, fresh and healthy. Is a toner which is also designed to reduce the appearance of open pores and helps to close them a little. I don't have open pores.

      I have found this toner doesn't leave my skin feeling too tight after using it as I have found with some other brands of toner. This one does have a slight tightening feeling but not quite as tight as some brands. The tight feeling I have felt hasn't felt uncomfortable or irritating and the feeling soon disappears.

      After applying the toner, it is then time to apply your moisturiser. After moisturiser has been applied in the usual way, the skin feels nice and soft and any tight feeling slackens and becomes plump and soft.

      It contains Witch Hazel which helps tone and tighten the skin,Chamomile which helps soothe the skin, these are nice ingredients which help the skin stay as healthy as possible and to help the skin glow. Is also perfume and colour free. Is 100% alcohol free too. So natural ingredients which are super for sensitive skin.

      I have very dry skin and it hasn't left my skin feeling any drier than normal. I also have sensitive skin and this toner hasn't irritated my skin or left me with any rashes etc. This is a nice mild, gentle toner and one which I think would be ideal for a teenager to use to begin using a toner to take care of their skin and learn how to do a cleansing routine each day.

      The toner can be applied both morning and night. Doesn't take long to wipe over the skin and it is very cheap to buy compared to some other brands.

      For a 200ml it costs just £2.99, I think you get a lot of toner for this price because a little does go a very long way with this one. It is good value for money and worth the price tag. The quality is really good too and I don't think it is a disappointing toner for under £3 in my opinion.

      This toner is ideal for anyone who has sensitive skin and wants to use a nice gentle toner. It doesn't feel harsh on the skin and I am very happy to recommend it to others looking to buying an affordable one but one which also works and helps the skin look healthy and in a good condition.

      I will continue to buy it in the future because it is a suitable toner for my sensitive, dry skin.

      I give this one 5 stars.

      Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Shame about the smell, other than that though it is great

      ~ Why I Bought It ~
      I tend to pick things up whenever I see them on offer (even if I don't particularly need them!) and I bought this toner a couple of weeks ago as it was half price.

      ~ Price ~
      The retail price for this toner is £2.99 so it's quite a lot cheaper than the toner that I was using previously. I only paid £1.50 for this toner due to it being on offer but I would quite happily pay the full price.

      ~ My Opinion ~
      I bought this toner mainly because it was on offer but also because I quite liked the sound of it. It has a blend of active ingredients including chamomile and witch hazel and it also contains pro vitamin B5, which is said to restore, soften & smoothe skin.

      I was really pleasantly surprised by the ingredients seeing as it is quite a cheap product to be honest! It is not perfumed or coloured & has no harsh chemicals in it which is what appealed to me the most as I have such sensitive skin and I liked the fact that it is alcohol free too. The toner comes in a green bottle which is tinted so I am able to see the toner through the bottle - really handy for telling how much I have left!

      The bottle has the ingredients on the back and directions on how to use it as well as a really brief description of what the product is and what each of the three 'nutrient' ingredients do. The bottle has a flip lid which has a small hole from which the toner comes out of which is very handy given how runny/watery the toner is - the consistency of it is just like water.

      I wasn't expecting the toner to smell of much to be honest seeing as it is fragrance free but it actually does have a smell to it which sort of smells 'off' - that's the only word I can think to describe it. Although the smell obviously isn't that nice, it isn't overpowering and it doesn't linger, so it doesn't bother me hugely but it this factor is definitely going to play an important role in how many stars I give the product!

      Using the toner is easy and I use it exactly how I would use any other toner. I simply put some on to a cotton pad & wipe my face with it after I've cleansed. The toner is runny but I like that it is not so Jenny that it soaks a cotton pad through, so I can use both sides of the cotton pad. The picks up any last traces of dirt and make up really quickly and my skin is left feeling refreshed and I also find that it provides quite a cooling feeling which lasts for a couple of minutes which is definitely an advantage given the warm weather that we are currently having.

      The toner leaves my skin feeling clean & nice and soft and although it doesn't leave it feeling hydrated or moisturised, it doesn't make it feel dry. I have very dry skin though so people with oily or normal skin might find that their skin feels a little more moisturised. It doesn't irritate my skin and no residue or anything is ever left behind.

      ~ All in All ~
      A cheap, gentle and effective toner. The slightly stale sort of smell that it has lets it down a little though so I am going to knock one star off. Apart from that it is the perfect toner and I will be continuing to use it for the foreseeable future!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Lovely toner

      I never tend to follow one skincare regime as I love all sorts of ranges and love to have all sorts of lotions and potions on my shelves. Simple is one of the many ranges I like as it is so gentle to the skin and I bought myself the cleanser, toner and a moisturiser when I saw them at £1 each in my local Home Bargains. I have seen the range in supermarkets and they seem to sell for between £2 and £3 depending on where you shop and whether they are on offer so I got a really great buy.

      The toner comes in a plastic bottle and holds 200mls of the toner, the toner is suitable for all skin types and even suitable for sensitive skin. It states on the bottle that it has chamomile to gently soften and smooth the skin, allantoin to soften and protect the skin and witch hazel to tone and tighten pores and reduce blemishes. The toner is ok to use for 12 months from the date that you open it although to be honest I would have no idea what date I opened it on. The bottle has a flip top lid on it which is easy to open and even better can be snapped back shut with one hand to prevent knocking over the bottle and spilling any.

      The toner is to use after you have either washed your face or cleansed your face and to use it you simply put some on a cotton pad and sweep over your face. The toner will remove any dirt that you have left behind and makes your skin feel really fresh after use which I really like. The toner is liquid so I find it easiest to put my cotton pad over the top of the bottle and tip upside down so that I don't pour too much out at once.

      The toner is easy to use, it doesn't sting at all even on open cuts and it doesn't have a real smell just smells nice and clean, the toner goes really far and I have used about a quarter of my bottle and have been using it for a few months although I don't use the same product everyday. My skin feels really refreshed after using the toner and it dries really quickly ready for putting your moisturiser on, my skin looks bright and feels really smooth too which is great. I would happily pay full price for this product and will give it 5 stars from 5.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I love to use this on a daily basis for super clean skin

        I have always used a facial toner of some sort or another. I simply don't feel properly 'clean' unless I use a toner after cleansing my skin as I feel that it lifts out all the smallest little impurities that you cannot tell are there with the naked eye. One of the toners I started to use a little while ago was Simple Kind to Skin Facial Toner. I only paid £1 for this bottle and I think that's an excellent price as I have seen it almost double the price since I bought this in Home Bargains. I am currently just over half way down this bottle at the moment and I use it every single night, without fail, after I have cleansed my skin.

        I have used a lot of different brands of toners on my face and some of them can be quite harsh and drying. Simple Kind to Skin Facial Toner is different in this respect, in that it is so gentle and kind to my skin and it never makes it feel 'tight' or dehydrated as some (more expensive) toners can do.

        I use this toner in exactly the same way as I do any other sort. The bottle is light green opaque plastic with a flip top lid. I cleanse my face first and then I apply this to a cotton wool pad and gently stroke it across my face (and neck) paying special attention to the crevices at the side of my nose, where I find a lot of oil and impurities lurk.

        No matter how well I have cleaned my face beforehand I am always impressed by how much dirt still manages to come off onto the cotton wool pad after I have used this across my face. I could never just apply a moisturiser after using a cleaner on my face as I'd still feel dirty. Using a good facial toner is a standard part of my daily beauty routine. I don't have many - but this is certainly one of them!

        It has no smell to speak of. It feels light and fresh on my skin and causes me no adverse reaction as it so kind and gentle. It's suitable for everyday use and so long as you make sure that you don't use it on the delicate eye area, then it really does work a treat.

        It's certainly a bargain at only£1 and a bottle lasts for ages, even with daily use.

        I highly recommend it.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        5 stars

        To take care of my skin I have a cleanser, toner and moisturiser. This is the Toner that I have, I chose it because it was cheap and also because I have used Simple products before and found that they were very good.

        It comes in a slightly see-through green bottle which is medium height and round, it comes up about 2 3rds of the way up against a Radox bottle. Although it looks like quite a small bottle in comparison to others it goes a long way, I have had this a year and still not even used half of it.

        I apply this using cotton wool directly to my skin after having cleansed it first. It soaks into the cotton wool ball nicely and then I wipe it onto my face. It feels cold on my skin but not in a startling way but in a more refreshing way. It definitely makes my skin feel as though it has been freshened up. It doesn't sting at all even when I have sore skin, this is a very gentle product. I have used a toner before which stung but not this one.

        It doesn't really have a smell to it at all, I sometimes think it smells like cucumber but I think that is psychological given the packaging is green!

        This toner helps to remove make up (so long as I cleanse first) then it removes impurities from my skin. I always have a look at the cotton wool ball afterwards to see out of curiosity what is on it and sometimes it is amazing to see little marks on the cotton wool that would alternatively be on my skin instead and it's nice to know that I am cleaning it like this.

        After using this toner my skin feels fresh and cleaned and light. I don't know if it looks this way to others but it definitely feels nice for me. I use this several times a week and will continue to do so, I don't see any point in using a different brand. This cost me about £2 and is very impressive.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        SImple toner

        The range of Simple skin care products is one of my favourite as I find them very kind to skin but also very effective as well. I have been using the toner now for quite a few weeks, switching to that when my Boots toner ran out after reading quite a few favourable reviews about it on this site.

        The 200ml bottle of toner cost me just £2.99 which I thought was such a good price, considering that I used to use Clinique toner at nearly £20 a bottle!

        A toner is basically a liquid that you use on your face about you have thoroughly washed your face and it helps to remove any dirt that is left and remove dead skin-cells. It can also help to tighten your face, give it a general all over toned appearance and also give it a bit more of a healthy bright look.

        Simple say that this toner is for, "natural healthy looking skin. It has a perfect blend of multi-vitamins and skin-loving ingredients to keep your skin clarified and refreshed."

        The toner comes in a nice plastic bottle with a flip cap lid and a small hole at the top so it makes it easy for you to apply the toner to a cotton wool pad for application. The packaging looks exactly like all the other Simple packaging so you will spot it easily on the shelf.

        The toner is really easy to use. I apply quite a liberal amount to a cotton wool pad and then smooth it all over my face and neck. The first sensation you get with this toner is that of a very refreshed and hydrated face. The toner is extremely cooling when I first apply it to my face and I love that feeling of really getting a nice clean face. This toner is 100% alcohol free so you do not get that initial sting to your face like you do with other toners and I like that because I don't want my skin to hurt, I just want it to be clean. The toner doesn't have a smell either, just like all the other simple products so there is nothing extra added to give it a smell which I like.

        The vitamins included in this toner are Pro-vitamin B5 and B3 as well as chamomile, witch hazel and allantoin and the nice thing is even if you have quite sensitive skin you can still use this toner.

        In the weeks that I have been using it I think my face looks really fresh and bright and I have had no spots or patchy bits so I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a cheap but effective toner.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good product, great for sensitive skin.

        I've been using Simple products for ages, and love them all! After a mystery allergic reaction to something (I still don't know what) which made me break out in horrible, painful hives, I swapped out all my skincare for products with as few nasties as possible. A bit of investigation led to me to Simple.

        I wasn't using a toner before this, so can't compare it to other products, but I'm quite pleased with this.

        Like most Simple products, the toner has no noticeable smell when you use it, which I personally like; perfumes are often what's irritating in skin-care products.
        The packaging is nice and sturdy; no fiddly clasps or lids threatening to fly off and spill all over the bathroom cabinet. The see-through plastic the packaging is made of is useful too, as you know exactly how much product you have left.
        One bottles lasts ages, you only need to use a small amount of this each time, as a little goes a long way.

        When I use it, I get a sort of light tingling sensation, which suggests this product is actually doing something. It tingles without stinging and really shifts any stubborn bits of make-up left, and removes any left behind cleanser. My skin feels soft after use, and it definitely looks brighter with regular use.

        For sensitive skin types, this is a great toner. I haven't had a single reaction since I started using it.

        I don't think this does anything amazing that other toners don't, but it's nice to get a good product without having to rub nasty chemical stuff all over your face!

          highly recommended

          Simple do NOT test on animals

          It comes in a 200ml bottle and is avalible at most supermarkets and chemists for around £2.99 and its use by date from opening is 12 months.


          MY EXPERIENCE
          ______________
          Well I have really problematic skin and Iv tried practically everything out on the market. I was drawn to Simple as a brand because of the natural properties and becuase it has no harsh chemicals in. It was also on offer of 3 for 2 and I wanted to get a new clenser, toner and mousitrizer, so I bought it. Now most Simple stuff comees in boxes so you cant actually see the product untill you get home, however the toner is an exception, it is in a tall light green bottle which is kind of see through. It has all green and white writing on. It comes only in a 200ml size and you can recycle the bottle.

          USING IT- Apply to cotton wool..... wipe across the skin in a gentle upwards movement.... follow up with the Simple hydrating moisturiser.
          I actually use warm water first to open the pores, then use the toner to clean rinse and close them. Now the toner is liquid so it does come out fast, but there is only a pinprick sized openinng in the bottle to help stop this. It does have avery light fragrence of chamomile, and it smells plesent and relaxing and aftera few secods on the skin you cant tell its there. The toner takes about 5 secs to be absorbed into the skin, and leave a matte effect. Iv had this bottle for around 3 months and I still have some left i the bottom.

          MY OPINION
          ___________
          Well I have to say Im a fan of this toner, It simple and easy to use, smells great and is light on the skin. I have seen an improvement to my skin and its even helped tighten the scarred pores I have. I think the price is reasonable for the size as it does last well. I also like the fact everything is natural and as a company they dont use chemicals and they dont test on animals.

          I give it 5/5 and would highly reccomend to anyone.

          Thanks for reading and rating.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great product

          I've been using this toner on and off for years. I always find myself reaching back for this after trying out new and more expensive brands. My skin type is combination/oily and mildly sensitive, with a few products that give me spots.

          This toner is priced at around £2.99 but varies depending on offers in stores such as Superdrug and Boots. It contains pretty much nothing. No scent, no colouring, no chemicals..ideal for senstive skin. The bottle and packaging is bog standard, nothing flashy keeping the costs at a minimum.

          I use this after cleaning/washing my face using a cotton pad, sweeping it across my entire face paying close attention to areas where my pores are more obvious (ie, nose, chin and cheeks). Upon cleansing my face, i never feel like the product is entirely removed, almost like there's a greasy layer lying on my skin. The simple toner removes any traces of this excess cleanser, any remaining oil and freshens skin.
          I can't sit here and claim this toner is life changing and will remove acne etc, but in terms of adding onto your daily skincare regime, it is definitely a great member of the Simple family. Once used, it makes my skin feel fresh, clean and mattified ready to apply my daily/nightly moisturiser. It's great as a touch up too. On holiday when my skin is feeling oily and worse for wear, using this toner freshens up my face.

          Overall, this product will remain in my skincare regime until I deem it necessary to branch out and try another. On it's own, it won't do much but as part of a cleanser/toner/moisturiser routine, it works great for improving skins texture/appearance. If you have sensitive skin and are dubious to believe that this is great for sensitive skin, give it a go and you will be surprised. Similarly, don't waste money on £6 toners that do the exact same thing. This is a great product.
